What we need to know about Jihan: The LONG TERM goal of jihad is world domination under an extremist form of Shari'ah (Islamic) law as was seen in Afganhistan and Somolia. Jihad is not, as some Western apologists claim, simply a striving for individual perfection.
Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s chief henchman said in the summer of 2006: “Jihad seeks the liberation of Palestine, the entire country of Palestine and to liberate every land that used to be a territory of Islam, from Spain to Iraq.”
